Awesome. More footage from the cutting room floor being packaged as a new episode.

Dare To Dream said...

Yet another pathetic ploy to snag the dwindling viewers.

Desperate is not too strong a word.

They are promising 'viewers' favorite moments', eh? Dare I hope, then, that I might see my own 'favorite moment', one where Kate states she's going to a residential psychiatric facility to try to find her sanity and is bidding a permanent farewell to the cameras?

Ah, well....one can dream......

marie said...

oh boy!

more hannah pooped
joel on a bike
aadens i cant see sheep
alexis and an alligator

are you sure this isnt a rerun?

she is evil said...

Kate walks down memory lane. Here's one to show those boys how you felt about them: cupcake episode.

Janine said...

I did have a favorite moment. Even with hindsight being 20/20, I can see a tinge of love and vulnerability... albeit K8 was in control and ordering everyone around (the one famous time she told the crew to leave). It was Jon's 30th birthday... Loved his smile... his sincere surprise. Mady was a bit of a ham, even then... K8 had packed a stack of those potty seats (one for each) even though Beth had enough bathrooms (probably enough for each child to have their own). I loved the children attempted to dress themselves and Beth giving them love and props for trying. I loved that Jodi made a special time of letting the girls (twins) each pick a recipe and baking their choice. Later on K8 did her own version of that where Jon drops off and picks the girls up from a class, away from home... Heaven forbid they make a mess, and clean it up in her kitchen. That show had the kind of moments that brought this family tomy attention. K8 was kinder to Jon and spoke about the casualty rate among parents of multiples. She sure did her research. When she decided how many, when and how... she also studied how long to give it.

really! said...

I can't wait to see what this episode consists of!

Rose said...

Oh, yes. "Hannah pooped in Hannah's underwears" is sure to be included, along with Collin's little dance after Kate finished yelling at him and the other boys. We can also expect to see Alexis's "Hi, hi, hi Mommy" moment (which, in all seriousness, is actually a moment that I always loved, because Kate seemed more like a real, normal mother back then).

In short, it will be an opportunity for them to do something they've NEVER, EVER done before--make Kate the center of attention and let her take over the episode with her whole "Oh, I'm so sad that my kids won't have these opportunities anymore" act. I don't think I've ever seen Kate do that, so it's bound to be something new and interesting...

abettermom said...

Ok.... here's the deal. TLC wants us to believe, as usual, that it's the "viewers favorite moments." But let's keep in mind the bigger picture. They have a brand, or better yet, an image that they'd like to market - KATE. So, what they will do is pick the very best cutest moments of Kate and her kids. Yes, we all know that there are not many, but the ones that exist are super cute (i.e. Hi Mommy, over and over by Alexis, maybe?). So we will get an episode of Kate as the most wanted/welcomed Mommy on the planet and Jon will likely not even have a role. Come' on TLC.... we all watched this the first time around. We know and we get it and we have a memory that cannot be erased, although you'd like it to be. Even if at some point Kate was a glimmer of a good Mom, her behavior on and "off" camera during the recent years has completely solidified her as nothing but a good Mom. And while your ratings may be up with her "specials," it's only because of the current situation. People like to gawk at a train wreck; call it human nature. But when the divorce is over and there is no more
"scandal" to be had, she will not captivate anyone with half a brain. Surely they have to know this....

For the Moment? said...

And Alexis Mommy? Hi Mommy? When Kate came home from tummy tuck, I think is Kate's personal favorite too.

For the Moment? said...

Hannah...Enjoy Yourself...shaking her head. Another one of Kate's favorites.

I loved the look on Aaden's face (utter bliss and concentration) when the zookeeper was paying close attention to him and carrying him around and telling him about the animals and making him feel very special.

Little did we know back then how rough the kids had it...and how really, really special that was for him.

I also loved the look on Aaden's face when Jon stopped at Dunkin Donuts and got coffee and got donut holes for Aaden. He enjoyed them so much. He always made food look so special and just really enjoyed it(again little did we know).

GosselinOHolics, Beware said...

For those who are trying to stay Gosselinfree&sober, Beware! This one is surely meant to be a stroll through the liquor store for Gosselin-o-holics.

Be gone, Satan.

We said...

Oh how I wish that they would show some of Kate's NASTIEST moments.

K8H8R said...

what a snorefest! I'm so "done" to quote K8.

It's only an hour show.

kate is a cocky bitch said...

the greedy self-serving bitch spends another hour talking about herself on coast to coast TV, what a shocker

Cheetah said...

Something makes me think they won't include my favorite moment: when Jon said "No more filming" and kicked TLC off the property.

katesanopportunist said...

Just another pathetic attempt to help K8 pay that "stack of bills" she has in her purse by keeping the show in productions -somehow. Get a job K8.

Merrilee said...

If Kate watches this, I wonder if it will make her sad.

The commercial showing her just home from her tummy tuck, when she went into the "nursery", and one of her precious babies kept saying hi to Kate, it broke my heart.

Kate acted like a loving mother. The baby obviously loved Kate.

Those were the good old days.

I hope both Jon and Kate watch it.

Im sure it is.
THe shot made good tv. TLC must have been pleased.

For all we know they did a dry run a few times and then filmed- to ensure all the kids were standing up and facing fwd.

I saw the Utah episode recently and Aaden only wanted Beff to sit next to him, help him skates etc,,,
Pity she was removed from his life.

Denise said...

I love the "Hi Mommy" clip as well but something always bothered me about it. I know Kate could not pick up the babies because of her surgery but it saddened me that none of them reached to be picked up. They knew that they had to stay in those cribs until she let them out.

Shari said...

Ok, so since they ran out of footage, Kate has pretended to answer pretend viewer's questions; she's pretended to answer pretend questions by Natalie Morales who pretended to interview her; and now she's going to pretend to stroll down memory lane of the times when Jon & the kids used to pretend to tolerate her? Certainly this is the end of the road! What else could she possibly pretend to do next Monday? Be human? Yeah, right.

Well said! BRAVO Cheetah!

For PR's sake! said...

Would bet the farm there won't be one 1/2 second clip of the 4th birthday cupcake decorating episode. That was pure horror.

TLC senses they have a 'new audience' - going to play all the 'pretty parts' to try to paint Kate in a new light. Plain and simple.

can't stand her said...

The Hi Mommy scene with Alexis was so dear, so innocent, and in retrospect, so sad. It was odd that all Kate could muster was to rub the sweet child's cheek. While that was fine, it did seem odd Kate couldn't be more demonstrative after not seeing the kids for a week. She could have sat in a chair or lay in bed and cuddled each baby for a while. They were small enough that it was unlikely anyone would have squirmed hard enough to hurt her. And it would have made for good tv if it were heartfelt. Hey, but at least she got her damn tummy tuck.

STANDWITHMEORSTANDAGAINSTME said...

I'm guessing TLC will opt not to show the episode where Kate 'had' to turn her back so as not have
to watch the 'mess' her kids were making as they did a craft project (pottery painting?). Or the way she made fun of their final hand-made projects.

Or when she ruined an otherwise nice day by disallowing the boys rolling down a slope because SHE doesn't like to clean grass stains.

Or the way she dismissed Jon's suggestion to have a picnic on a picnic table, insisting instead that he (as always, doing all the work)set the picnic up on a blanket on the ground, but then, once Jon had set it all up, demanded he move everything to the picnic table he'd originally suggested. She, of course, did NONE of the work, as always.

Or any of her constant snide, critical, uncalled for remarks made to her husband, her sister-in-law, the cleaning lady, about Nana Janet riding the birthday pony.

TLC, as always will bend and twist reality until it screams in pain and is no longer even recognizable. In short, TLC will lie again by omission.

So when is this thing officially ending? Is there anything left to do?

Judy said...

This ex-viewer's "favorite moment" will be when both of these sad excuses for humanity fade into obscurity.

For the Moment? said...

I wonder if they will include the COME AND GET YOUR POPCORN, THAT'LL BE $552, with a crazy fur thing thingy popcorn bowl on top of her head. Cara was looking at her like have you gone mad?

One of my favorite viewer moments (none of which will make the grade) but when they were playing hide and seek and she kept ragging about how Jon wouldn't fit in too many places and the camera panned down and got a good shot of what was then her broad flabby bottom. They always managed to get their little digs in...

I always loved to watch the kids eat...they just relished their little grapes and so forth...

readerlady said...

I'm willing to bet that they don't show my favorite moments, either. One was when Jon chastised Khate for not playing with her children and the other was when Jon asked her when she was going to pull the stick out.

I don't know if you are being serious or sarcastic here, FortheMoment, so I'll just chime in.

I wish somebody - anybody - would finally take the time to teach the children some table manners. Kate is not qualified, since she needs to be a student in the class herself.

The use of napkins, the chewing of food with closed mouth, swallowing before speaking, not hunching down over your plate, and the basic use of flatware are all on the curriculum.

Martha Stewart, Elizabeth Post, where are you when we need you?

For the Moment? said...

Hi Fidosmom..re: Eating

I was being sincere about the eating, but do agree that they need some table manners. They didn't have an example. Neither parent ate at the table w/ them..they stood and ate usually.

The kids were always so hungy, and just seemed to relish every morsel. Kind of like little Joel's eyes lit up at the cupcake place and he said "oh my" when they were putting the icing on the cupcakes.

Didn't know then what I know now.

Janine said...

Alexis saying hi from her crib breaks my heart... It is sweet and sad all at once.
Cupcakegate and Gumgate are two they will avoid. I don't know how they can avid the actual gates...

The Aloneness is So Alone said...

How about a parade of cuts showing the many family, friends, filming crew, neighborhood and church helpers, SPOUSE, that were either discarded or got tired of dealing with Queen Kate and adiosed? Swelling in the background could be the song, "Who's Sorry Now?" Or "One is a Lonely Number".

Carrin said...

There were sweet moments in the early seasons. That is what we saw when we first began following this family's show.

I remembers I was telling my sisters about it, telling them they would just love that cute show with two six-year olds and six two-year olds.

Then when they first watched it, Kate had begun her change, and I was embarrassed to have recommended it to my sisters.

You know, it would just be Jon's luck for all the lawyers to watch this episode to prepare themselves for court.

----
Its part of the weird infantilizing that Kate has done from the beginning. The teachers at my kids' daycare made table manners a matter no of being "good" but of being "like a grown-up." So they taught each child how to pour milk on to cereal, to pass food, to use real silverware and napkins. From age 2!

It takes a little patience at the beginning (lots of spills), but with the parents reinforcing the same system at home, those kids all behaved with courtesy and mutual respect.

And self-respect!!!!! Why do they still feed the kids off those compartmentalized tray plates. They are old enough to see that big kids use plates and bowls and regular cups. And not ones made from paper. How does that make them feel about themselves?

lifesabeachnyc said...

Just a point about the Alexis "hi mommy, hi mommy" moment, (which was adorable of her). I remember at one point some of the GWOP'ers pointing out that in that scene, Khate comes in and of course goes straight for Hannah first, gushing over her. And then gave about 1/4 of the warmth when she finally got around to the boys.........and imagine how many times that sort of thing has happened without cameras catching it....

Not a fan of either said...

Does anyone want to take a bet on whether or not she sheds a tear (or two), swallows hard, and asks herself a question tomorrow night? Any of the above.

Niki said...

This will probably be almost exactly like the "Ugly Moments" videos you can find on Youtube.

she is evil said...

For the moment, I know what you mean about the kids enjoying their food, especially when they were younger. Most toddlers and young children pick at their food and have to be encouraged to eat what's on their plates. The 8 always seemed ravenous, even when Kate served them slop, and reminded me of lions eating their prey when they ate. I understand that feeding so many kids is a big endeavor but always felt Kate underfed them and waited until they were screaming with hunger before preparing or serving their food. She also made life difficult for herself by insisting that they eat organic, refusing to eat fast food and cooking from scratch (if we are to believe her). No one would fault her for making a few boxes of mac and cheese or canned soup for lunch. The kids would probably love it. But no, when Kate did cook, she made food preparation difficult for herself and fed them unappetizing food (salmonella chicken, anyone?) Maybe she let the kids get so hungry so it would appear that her cooking was good for the cameras. And whenever the kids got truly good food (Korean food, meals in Hawaii and North Carolina), my goodness, they ate as if they were starving. And yes, the whole family needs to learn some table manners, including Kate

Mom2Many said...

Ok, I'll bite...what is "Salmonella chicken?"
I haven't actually watched much of this show (prefer info thru GWoP etc) , but have seen some of season four. I would think grapes and triscuits with hummus (?) on them was a SNACK. Right? And I am a mom of seven....some of whom eat like hounddogs.! Hey KHate, try feeding a 14 y/o boy 2 or 3 dinners in an evening! lol

rural mom said...

The Hi Mommy Alexis moment didn't strike me as cute or innocent. It felt sinister, like what kind of punishment is going on where a 2 year old doesn't dare reach to be picked up? Especially one who hasn't seen her Mommy in 2 weeks. And she kept saying Mommy tentatively like she was trying to figure out if it was safe to approach Kate, lord knows Kate's moods were up and down.

NotaKateFan said...

My "fan favorite" moment probably won't make the cut - when Jon said "Kate, take the stick out of your a$$" or something like that in one of the early episodes. Now THAT would be worth watching again LOL!

Shoshanna said...

If they wanted to make this "reality" show really real,
they should splice together all the stuff they
cut out during the entire run of this program and show it as a special:

The Unbearable Honest-to-Gosselin Truth.

Bet the ratings would go through the roof.

she is evil said...

Re: salmonella chicken. On an episode earlier this season, Kate grilled chicken on their new barbecue and they ate dinner outside. The woman mentioned salmonella poisoning (in front of the kids) several times during the preparation of the chicken, even praying out loud to the chicken and asking that it not give her family food poisoning. She appeared to be auditioning for the cooking show she was rumored to be hoping for. Funny thing is that while eating dinner, Cara complained that her chicken was undercooked and sure enough, the babysitter checked it and declared that it was bloody. She's a damn fool, bragging away about cooking organic and healthy but couldn't master grilling chicken. Idiot

Pa Mom Knows said...

"Does anyone want to take a bet on whether or not she sheds a tear (or two), swallows hard, and asks herself a question tomorrow night? Any of the above."

--------------------------

You know -- this really, absolutely drives me nuts...worse than the ums and the corrupted English usage. Why does she repeatedly ask herself a question and then answers it? I guess it's better than asking herself a question and then just letting it hang there in mid air!

can't stand her said...

Alexis' hi mommy moment was cute, but the kid appeared to be ASKING Mommy? Mommy? I think she may have been confused because Kate was gone for so long and had a makeover while away. I think Alexis wasn't quite sure if it was mommy because of the new blond hair (and maybe because Kate was actually being nice at the tIme).

Feel Sorry for the ReCap Person! said...

Ah, this outta be good. I'm not watching but I bet a gazillion dollars that all our fave clips of herself being a b*tch to Jon and the kids will be "redacted" - ain't that a fancy word? LOL

No way, no how will The Loser Channel show any of the clips unfavorable to their precious moneymaker.

I imagine the producers have been working round the clock to edit the tape to make the episode favorable to Khate - they are going to want to leave us with an upbeat positive spin so when she goes on to make "her own show" viewers will "have fogotten" how she verbally and emotionally abused her family, how she grabbed for all the freebies and then wasn't civil to the workers providing them, how she alienated her friends, parents and siblings.

Can't wait to read the recap on this one. I'll have a puke bowl handy........ or wait, I'll have to read it in the laundry room on the floor........ ha ha

What a joke these losers are! Too bad for the kids....

Canadian Mom said...

Must be SO quiet in the mansion now...

Just the echoing of Kate's screams...

(I counted 7 TLC bodies at the b-day party the end of the clip - what a bizarre way to grow up)

salmonella cookbook said...

Pssst, jon, don't ever eat anything left in the fridge from her custody time.

fidosmommy said...

RE: Salmonella Chicken. What got me the most about that whole fiasco was Kate's blasé attitude about it. She just sort of mugged to the camera and shrugged her shoulders. No big deal, huh?

RE: What Kate serves. It's an act of kindness on her part that she only feeds them a tablespoon of
those casseroles she doles out. Can you imagine eggplant casserole on its third trip to your plate?
The chicken cacciatore looked ghastly to me. But like my dad used to say, if you're hungry enough, you'll eat anything. I'm sorry these children are to that point so often.

Re: WHEN Kate feeds them. Sheisevil pointed out that Kate waits for them to have a low blood sugar meltdown before she feeds them. They seem to be on a very rigid feeding schedule (at age 5 and 9) and she decides when their tummies need filling. The infantilization continues. If their tummies disagree, the ghrelin hormone kicks in telling them they are hungry and getting cranky, they go into meltdown, which causes Mom to stress out and get mad at them. But she just hasn't taken any time from being SuperMom to look at her children and read their signals. We Need Food!

sandy said...

I think my eyeballs popped out of my skull when Kate lamented that her kids won't get anymore freebie opportunities now that the show is ending.

Be grateful that your children have seen a restaurant or a theme park. Be grateful that you, as a single mom, can send your kids to a private school. Be grateful that you can feed your children and they can wear brand new, coordinated clothes. Be grateful that you got a (free) tummy tuck out of the deal.

If you showed a little more gratitude and a little less attitude, your show would NOT be failing. (Yep, I said fail.) You sunk this show with your own two hands.

If you want to lament over the fact that you have no relationship with your children or that you lost your husband and every friend and family member... That's fine. But do NOT complain that your kids won't get more free opportunities. I could vomit. There are so many children that would be thrilled to have ONE of the opportunities that your kids had.

Remember, the lord gives and he takes away. Oh, I forgot. Church is "too hard" for you.

Pa Mom Knows said...

"Re: WHEN Kate feeds them. Sheisevil pointed out that Kate waits for them to have a low blood sugar meltdown before she feeds them"

---------------------------

Don't forget -- the kids are in school now. I'm assuming they eat breakfast before they leave (if they are hungry), and they do have a regular lunch schedule at school. I would hope that they are fed dinner every night, quite possibly by the nanny.

sallyomally said...

Concerning how rigid Kate is with the feeding schedule. Did you see how stingy she was over a drink of water? Can you imagine how she regulates food? No wonder the little kids asked for a snack immediately after the divorce announcement. They are like dogs waiting for the food dish. And Kate doesn't want her little money makers to get chubby. (they do have her genes after all..)

True enough. But there are weekends and there are the outings.
The children have (at least in the past) had frequent hunger meltdowns
when out with mommy somewhere. It comes across on camera as bad behavior by the children, but I have often believed it was because their "hunger hormone" has kicked in.

Kate just doesn't deal very well with things that are not according to the schedule she keeps in her head. The children should be hungry on schedule, right? They were when they were babies, why not now?

migraines much said...

Khate can't manage hydration (lack of often results in headaches... hmmmm that reminds me of something), food, forget it- way over her head. THIS from Miss Nurse? She needs to quit bragging about her medical whatever it was degree. If she doesn't apply the most basic practices to her children it is scary to think how she may have treated strangers.

__________________________________

This weekend I went to YouTube and watched Gosselin ugly moments, as well as some cute ones. The "hi mommy" was in fact the child asking Kate if she really was her mommy due to her new hair color; I do believe the child was confused.

As for one of my favorite moments, it would be when one of the tups went over to Jon who was sitting at the table and she told him he was a "pretty daddy" and then she did a little twist. Pure honestly from a child who loves and adores her father. However Jon, obviously not fully awake, just looked up at the camera with a WTH look on his face :)

But what I also found, for the first time, was a clip of when Jon and Kate were on Dr. Phil. With hindsight being 20/20, and knowing what I know now, I was truly disgusted at the freebies that were given to them and their reaction to the gifts - Kate can truly cry on cue.

* * * * *

Such a good point! When my son was small, he had a smaller plate, and it was plastic but not compartmentalized. He had his own smaller sized fork and spoon too. The point wasn't that he shouldn't make a mess -- in fact, I expected that there would be spillage and food that went onto the floor, which is why having linoleum floors was a blessing. But he wouldn't learn to use utinsels except by trying.

In his preschool, at meals the children all sat around a table. They said a simple grace before the meal, and then they ate. They learned how to talk without interrupting others, they drank from cups without sippy lids, they used utinsels, etc. So what happened at home was reinforced at school. And all this by age 3.

It's very sad that these children have such poor manners, but children learn best by example (or in this case, worst).

Kate is a whine-o said...

Sandy, Kate whining that her kids won't have the same opportunities in the future without the show is shameful. First of all, cooking with celebrities and staying for two weeks in a luxury resort are not necessary and normal milestones in one's childhood. If Kate's kids don't travel or have family field trips in the future it will be her own damn fault. Put the kids in the van and go somewhere. It doesn't have to be far away, or for two weeks, or luxurious. They live near Philadelphia, an incredibly historic city, and New York, which is, well, New York. Go away for a long weekend. It will be a lot of work and maybe not a vacation for you, but if you do it all for your kids, you'll have no problem doing it and paying for it. It's all about attitude, Kate.

Sugar said...

Seems it was a common thing for Kate to blame the kids' poor behavior on either a sugar high or low glucose level. As an earlier poster noted, as an RN, you'd expect more insight into medically-related issues & feed her kids accordingly.

Janine said...

I am sorry I didn't see who mentioned the water... but I have always wondered if she didn't share because it wasn't water. I know she is odd about germs too, but I bet someone could have replaced her water on that set.

toby said...

Really? Kate has more to say about the paparazzi? I'm betting the "Viewer's Top Moments" will somewhere have her referencing paparazzi. Which were almost non-existent till she and Jon created a ready-made tabloid event. Who cares about those now boring kids?

And an aside - why are 5 year olds, born in May, in "pre-kindergarten?" Birthdays in May should set them right on course of most kids entering kindergarten at 5 in September. Kate always makes a big deal that her 6 suffered no lingering effects from a multiple birth. And all those "opportunities" afforded by the TLC trips that she claims have afforded them chances to grow that other kids don't have? She never speaks of the fact they might lag behind developmentally. Those of us who have 5 year olds, or who remember our kids at that age, know the Gosselin 6 are behind in speech and maturity. No big deal, they all eventually catch-up - but why doesn't Kate (and TLC) discuss this?

-----------
The one that really made me wonder just how good a nurse she was --when she had to take Jon's staples out of his head. I've had staples removed myself, and I've taken the stitches out of countless spayed cats. It's the easiest thing in the world, given the correct tool! I couldn't believe what a big deal she made of it, and how much she hurt Jon.
I doubt that Kate has ever done much of anything hands-on with patients.

Vanessa said...

The best part for Khate will be that Jon won't be on the couch with her. She'll be able to narrate each moment to her liking.
Even if (BIG if) they show some not so not so favourable clips of her, she'll be able to defend it and not have Jon point out the way it REALLY comes across. Remember the most "Embarassing Moments" episode?

The thing for me now is that man from jail saying he's the father of these children. So they must be watching this show in jail.
How many perps. out there watching this show?
IT MAKES ME SICK!

***********************************

You're absolutely right with this analogy. We've got a puppy who is still on a feeding schedule. If we're late with his food he will sit there and whine at us and scold us. Sort of a puppy melt-down.

Debi said...

When Alexis was saying "Mommy" like she did, I think it was only because Kate had her hair cut and colored (make over). I took it like she was saying something like "mommy...is that YOU?".

Trudy said...

With this episode of "Viewer's Top Moments" it sounds like another way to stretch out the show until TLC can pressure Jon into letting the kids be filmed again. What are they going to do next week, have one of the kids top moments? That will give them 8 more weeks of lame shows. How about a "favorite freebies" show?

TandLMommy28 said...

My favorite moment was when Jon stood up to Kate and said, "You don't play with your own kids!" and she said, "You're right, I don't."

Why is this my favorite moment? Because I think it was the only REAL, HONEST moment we ever saw on this "reality" show.

I don't know how they can call this viewers favorite moments if they didn't let the viewers actually have a choice. Did I miss that?

Well, anyway, my favorite is when they went to Sam's to shop and Jon did a little circle around dance in the store with the cart...or was it a stroller of kids? He just seemed to be enjoying himself. I also liked his b-day episode when Kate surprised him with Florida Key lime pie. He was a little tipsy and so funny and cute.

I did like the tummy tuck episode because they still seemed to really love each other. But, I think that was the beginning of the end for them. That was when Kate started changing.

Favorite Moment #1: "COME AND GET YER POPCORN!!!"

Favorite Moment #2: Making cupcakes for the tups' 4th (?) birthday - only the girls can eat their cupcakes. The icky boys may not, despite how badly they want them and how pitiful they look.

At the risk of being called a sadist, I challenge whoever has the seasons on dvd to do a full expose on this sham...

cross reference lies, contradictions, and so on. It might take years to do. lol. Also, do things like freebies list, when and how, that sort of thing. when tanning started, better clothing, etc, etc.

How about a few volunteers? (gee...um...if I had the dvds...um...I might do it !) :)

starvingforattention said...

Gum-gate...won't be seeing this clip I'm certain. TLC will pretend that this uncaring-thankless-narcissistic-shrew of a woman she displyed doesen't exist.

By the way, those kids are starving by the time food is placed in front of them...remember the episode that they combined "Kate spends an entire day making a pot of soup" and the "announcement to the kids about their big move to the big house"? Those kids were gulpping down those styrofoam bowls filled with flavored water and various bits of chunky organic floaters. I think it was Alexis...she couldn't even stop eating as she was talking about the new house...she was so hungry.

Minka's tail said...

My favorite episode was the one where the kids got a box of goodies from the dollar store for Valentine's day. There is something very soothing about watching a "poor" person receiving a modest gift. The dolls, the day trips around PA and even the first few vacations may have been freebies, but they were still things most of us could afford. I'm from a modest-income family, but I've been to Disney World about 10 times both as a child and adult. I wish someone would pay for me, but I didn't feel irritated watching them get that trip.

The ski chalet vacation, mansion , luxury box in Phillies stadium and especially, the luxury resort in Hawaii are different issues altogether, beyond the means of anyone under the upper-middle class. TLC should have ended the show when they stopped living like typical Americans. People seriously began to resent them, and that may be fueling some of the interest in them in the tabloids.

Yes, I am pretty sure a book about what Jon and Kate have done to scam the public for years would be a bestseller!

Bravo, Janine! I think you've really hit on the correct answer!
My sister is an alcoholic (dry for 2 years now, thank God). She used to carry a water bottle of vodka around all the time, just in case. I don't know why I never made the connection before, but it would explain that whole scene.

EnjoyYOURSELF said...

"When Alexis was saying "Mommy" like she did, I think it was only because Kate had her hair cut and colored (make over). I took it like she was saying something like "mommy...is that YOU?".

As precious as that was (I LOVE Alexis), I thought the same you did; that she wasn't sure that was her mom or she was basically saying in a baby's way, how different mommy looked.

Kate is a whine-o said...
"Sandy, Kate whining that her kids won't have the same opportunities in the future without the show is shameful. First of all, cooking with celebrities and staying for two weeks in a luxury resort are not necessary and normal milestones in one's childhood. If Kate's kids don't travel or have family field trips in the future it will be her own damn fault. Put the kids in the van and go somewhere. It doesn't have to be far away, or for two weeks, or luxurious. They live near Philadelphia, an incredibly historic city, and New York, which is, well, New York. Go away for a long weekend. It will be a lot of work and maybe not a vacation for you, but if you do it all for your kids, you'll have no problem doing it and paying for it. It's all about attitude, Kate."


One of the most refreshing things I've read on this blog - and trust me, there have been a LOT of good comments here! I loved this one, though. VERY well-said! Of course Kate loves to whine that her kids won't have the same opportunities anymore, but how many kids are able to say that they went to as many places as the tups did before the age of four? How many luxurious vacations and five-star hotels do children need before they just become spoiled, unhappy little brats who keep asking for more and are no longer satisfied with anything? Does Kate really believe she's doing them a favor?

As for the organized outings, that's not Kate doing it for her kids. That's Kate looking for some juicy ratings and throwing in the "It's great for my kids" line as a little extra perk, to make herself sound like Supermom.

Even though the show is ending, Kate has EVERY opportunity to get the kids in the van and take them somewhere. Anywhere. How about keeping it simple by going to the zoo, to the dollar movie theater, or to a fun waterpark? It doesn't have to be rocket science, Kate, and you certainly don't have to drag the cameras along every time you or your "people" get a brilliant outing idea.

Sometimes, being a good mom is about the fun things you do when nobody else is watching. Let me ask you this, Kate: can you be with your kids, truly enjoy your time with them, and devote yourself to them when nobody is looking? More importantly, do you think you can manage to do any of those things in a T-shirt, jeans and sneakers, if for nothing else than the fact that wearing something more modest and comfortable might add to the enjoyment of the day? Think about it, because THAT would be "doing it for your kids", as you love to tell us over and over.

Here's a "best moment".

In the episode that showed Kate talking about the inability to save art projects. Kate says something like "she couldn't possibly save and/or display all the kids projects" as she is showing us the Sunday School projects the kids were so excited to show them. She has a look of complete disgust as she is showing the camera. Then as the family is filing into the house through the garage she lags behind making her way to the garbage can then shoves the projects into the can.

Sometime later, I'm sure, as the kids watched the video of this episode during naptime, they thought to themselves quietly so as not to disturb the queen "Oh, so that's where the que...ah, mommy displays our creativity"

Ahhhh, memories.

Just let them have fun and be creative..."Not THESE kids!"
Besides, unless she's directing the project and telling them exactly what they can and can't do, or lettin them pick the colours or style etc...she's not interested in keeping the project.
Kids should be able to produce PERFECT pieces of art doncha know?

Don't let it fool ya! The Hi Mommy bit was probably scripted. They probably said to the poor girl say it - say it - say it- say hi mommy when she walks throgh the door - say it, say it, say it.....again , again , once more, say it louder, not too loud, say it softly.....in the end the poor girl didn't know what to say and just said whatever she could. Scripted? So much for The realest reality show - my a**.

meow said...

Am I the only person that thinks the Kate makeover the doctor's wife insisted she had made her look worse? I cringe when I see that episode because the outfit the doctor's wife helped her pick out was not attractive on her body type.

I think I may be the only person that thinks that whole part where Alexis says "mommy" over and over again is clouded over by her really bad hair cut, clown makeup and bad outfit.

----------------------------

So true Vanessa. I've seen it before. But when she had the gull to actually throw them away on camera...and then to let it be broadcast on TV...it just made me feel so sad. Don't you remember the feeling of showing a parent what you did. Even if she just displayed them soomewhere for just a day...it would have made the kids feel so good about themselves. I know, I know...this is Kate we're talking about. Sigh...

whatever said...

I think TLC should just rename Kate plus 8 to 'Mady, Cara, Collin, Leah, Joel, Hannah, Aaden and Alexis plus 1. Maybe then the kids would actually get some airtime then.

Niki said...

I bet one of the "top moments" will be Jon and Kate's fake vow renewal. They did, afterall, devote three episodes (all one hour specials) to that Hawaii trip. :rollseyes:

fidosmommy said...

Just got home, so I haven't read very far back on this thread.

Kate! Are ya listenin', girl? Here's some advice from a woman who used to be a little girl and remembers the JOY of making things in arts and crafts for my parents
or even just for myself:

Get each child a special box and an art folder or large envelope. Let them keep whatever they decide they like enough to keep - if it fits in the box or folder, they can keep it. If they have to discard one thing to make room for another, fine. Then, at the end of that school year, have them clean out their boxes/folders and decide what really needs to be kept. Put those special things back in the box or folder. Then, the next year, start piling in the things they want to keep all over again. Do this process every few months if you have to. By the end of their school days, there will be a treasure box of things they are still proud of.

But please, let THEM decide what they want to keep that they made.

If they think you don't like what they made you, what must they think
about how you feel for the child who made it? To their little minds, if you reject the gift, you also reject the giver. Be gracious, Kate. Just give it a try, OK? It can be done.

I made a lopsided clay pot with a face on it for my mom when I was in Kindergarten. When we cleaned out her house some 40 years later, that ugly little thing was still on the bookshelf by the stairs. God bless her for loving whatever I made her.

Oh my. Its like they are trying to see how many ways they can re-package the same footage and call it new.

Ive seen enough of the name-calling, nastiness and abrasivness that the old Kate was and the and 'fake-can-do-mom' act dripping in condescension that the new kate is.

Blah.

Its too sad to see the saddness and distance in the kids eyes. Its not like the eyes of regular 5 year olds. And it really is sad.

MelissaTx said...

Okay, I was flipping through channels and this was on. I just caught the "worst blow ups" and I had to change it after that because Kate makes me WANT TO PULL MY HAIR OUT!!!!! But I have to admit, I was looking forward to seeing her be a WITCH......again.

So the first one was the coupon episode. Kate, bitchy? Yup. Oh, but she realizes it was "the wrong way to handle it." But, cut her some slack...they had just moved into a new house and she was worried about money. (This pattern will repeat later, "I was horrible, but oh wait, I had an excuse.")

Second one was when Jon told her to "pull the stick out." She did not even acknowledge the fact that she was being a totally controlling, condescending, witch to which John replied "pull the stick out." (Still makes me laugh!) So was it the wrong way for Jon to handle it? Nope...it was a "Sign of things to come" which she completed with a famous Kate cackle. OH WAIT!! Did she offer up excuses for Jon's behavior? Ummmm, that would be a negative. I guess she is only privy to excuses?

Third was the *dom dom dom dommmmm* Toys R Us debacle. Guess what? She dismisses it as her being stressed because she was having to work on Saturdays AND film the show. Gosh people, again, she was just stressed. He annoyed her. He was playing with toys. She DID admit she acted poorly, BUT...excuse after excuse after excuse to follow. Oh, and she claimed it was a learning process.

So let's recap...basically she handled it wrong for the two times she was shown as a total emasculator. BUT, Jon's comment was "a sign of things to come." Oh, but gosh...she learned something from it. Good girl Kate. (Oh and gain, Kate had EXCUSES. Jon had none.)

The woman makes me SICK!

Minka's tail said...

So far she has been given the opportunity to defend herself for her bad behavior and throw Jon under the bus for his (but, of course, he can't defend himself), made herself out to be a heroine for saving the dog's life (the dog she was mean to and gave away), and pointed out how Jon caused Alexis's accident. This is in the first 15 minutes. I'm gonna watch my subtitled Korean drama now-- The mothers-in-law on Korean dramas always slap their daughters in law--I would love to Mrs. Gosselin slap Kate.

So sad to see how loving and soft hearted she could be to the children....when did it turn? When did she forget she loved the little ones and become "mommy dearest"?

OK, I will admit that I'm watching this episode right now.

Kate is talking about "the experience she wouldn't trade for the world" and she's talking about their trip to Hawaii. It's weird because she literally doesn't seem to remember that they were there to renew their wedding vows in a pretend ceremony.

And the episode is making me a little sad. How can it all have gone so terribly bad in such a relatively short time?

Just sad.

Janine said...

OK... Like last week, I stopped in and watched. I was stunned to see that(most) EVERY single uncomfortable scene was highlighted. It was as if they took their CUES from this blog. Since there was no formal survey, maybe they did. Next week is something about 'bad' moments. AND 'only TWO weeks left, after 5 years' (5 years TLC?) K8s commentary was typical and I didn't really catch anything except her saying she was the same person and Jon changed... (that they were so young and changed, but she didn't change, she stayed the same
-Huh?-) I can't explain (it is so bizarre) she is so befuddled and can't keep her stories straight, so she doesn't say anything while she says everything at the same time. She is delusional... has no clue. can't wait for this re-cap!!!!

GoPoshGo said...

I'm sorry, but when referring to the Hawaii wedding vow renewal trip, did Kate refer to seeing Jon's grandma as being "in the AUDIENCE"??????

Also, is it just me, or does Kate take on an alter ego when doing a TLC-sanctioned interview (vs. a network interview)? Whenever she's on a TLC interview, she's all giddy, flirty and in control. When on network TV, she's all somber, awkward, stiff and serious.

What's up with that?

Janine said...

GoPoshGo... I did catch the audience part. She lives outside of normal.

It was a surprise. I bet this blog has a lot to do with tonights show.
We should mess with their minds and write next weeks 'reality episode' here and see how much shows up.
Holy inappropriateness-ish.

Janine said...

I didn't see the whole show. Did
K8 say she saved the dog? Wasn't Jon the one who took the dog to the vet picked the dog up up with ALL of the kids (in the winter weather). She (K8) was on a business trip...
One last thought. I was amused or taken aback by her wearing her black tankini in Hawaii (same one she wore for Jon's birthday)and covering herself up promptly with a towel. This was the romantic wedding vow renewal trip. I would have thought she would have tried a little bit to show Jon she still cared. Less than a year later we were ALL treated to a Bikini du-jour. She didn't have the boobs yet, but had her tummy tucked... Married 9 years and getting re-married... I would have tried to appeal to my husband (still do at 26 years)

qtrfan said...

OMG - this was the worst yet. Kate explains ALL of her bad behavior away by being "tired" or "done" or "stressed". Nothing is her fault - it was all due to influences beyond her control. Poor poor Kate.

Why oh why do I watch this crap???

PS I agree most of this show was based on what was read in this blog. I am sure it ticked Kate off to have to rehash all her bad behavior!

Harriet said...

For all Kate thinks she has friends at Figure 8 and TLC it really looks like they don't really like her.

CJP-GA said...

The day my china cabinet was delivered, my then 3 & 5 year olds decided that it was a perfect display case for their art work, clay projects, molded hand prints, favorite rocks, jewelry they had made me, etc.

6 years later I have never put a single dish in it and it is full of their precious handy-work. I always figured I could display expensive dishes in it when they move out but I don't think I will ever change a thing.

Gravy boats and place settings can survive in a box in the attic, but my kid's art work is priceless! Everyday I can walk by the cabinet and smile at purple turtles, construction paper turkeys, imprints of my babies' hands....and so on!!! I feel sorry for you Kate, you will never know the simple joys of life if you can't see beyond yourself.

You'd be wrong. Actually most of the big ones were there.

stopthemadness said...

I think Kate liked the Hawaii episode because she liked the trip. Period. It had nothing to do with the fake marriage to the guy she took every opportunity to emasulate.

And I LOVED how she riffed on about the "hi Mommy" bit - how much she just loved that and Alexis had "missed her" so much - (so much the kid didn't even ONCE ask to be picked up- have any of you real moms EVER approached a crib or play pen with a baby in it and had them NOT lift their arms to you and demand to be picked up?) and how she would NEVER be away from her kids for a week again.

B ut didn't she then take the next two years/seasons/ whatever, to be gone form them travelling and leaving Jon to deal with them - to come home do laundry and leave again? She doesn't and didn't give a crap about those kids if the cameras aren't on her.

Seeing Lexi standing in that crib just bewildered - but still game, still bonny and filled with good will - but yet not asking for an "uppy" is heartbreaking. She knew she wasn't gonna get picked up, and not because a toddler that age understands surgery. It's because those kids were left in those cribs for hours at a time, asleep AND awake, for 45 minutes on "time out" if they dared to leavetheir rooms before they had permission, this was before age two - and never had the expectation that their mother would pick them up when she came in, or that they had any impact on the decision to be out of the crib. Alexis did seem confused, like WTF do you want from me?

Totally amazing that Kate would leav e so many babies for so long, for an elective, cosmetic surgery that could have waited months.

Brummygirl said...

O.K. So this week I did record it and have just finished playing it through.
Talk about damage control!!! I am certain that someone from T.L.C. monitors this site, as they hit the bad moments from the word go as anyone knows, the last things stick in your mind best.
I think GoPoshGo mentioned that she always seems more relaxed when the T.L.C. cameras roll and I have to agree, she is not meant for talk shows!
Whatever was intended, still came out the same, everything was Jon's fault and Kate had legitimate excuses for when she blew up...of course!!
I agree with her, that she never changed, she was, is and always will be controlling.
On the flip side, there were some lovely moments with the kids and at some earlier point, Kate showed genuine affection for the kids but that all changed with the makeover.
There were also some awful moments when all the kids were screaming and hitting each other....yikes!!!
I wonder exactly when this was filmed? Was it spontaneous?..no....(I sound like Kate answering myself).
Two weeks to go....yippee...then Kate can sign up at the Employment Center as a scam artist!!!!

marie said...

I did find it interesting that on the trip to Utah...the meltdown that TLC fuzzed out STEVE'S face. He was sitting behind Kate...guess they didn't want us to remember he was on that flight - way back then. It wasn't fuzzed out on the original or on the clip on youtube. What a mess she is.

qtrfan said...

Harriet - I agree with you that the TLC crew really doesn't like Kate. There is an undertone that mocks her, and she doesn't get it.

Also, why didn't her make-up person do something about that big smudge of mascara???

I don't think Kate has made a lot of friends among the crew because they seem to allow her to make as ass of herself.

Janine said...

CJP-GA (I know I said I was done posting, I'm sorry)
I am so touched by your comment.
I am 50
This past year, my parents handed me a large box with my nickname on it. Inside were pre-kindergarten sunday school papers and a little tracing of my hand at age 4. I showed my husband the faded construction paper. He said "that is PRICELESS. Let's preserve it so nothing happens." My parents have four children (one has a terminal brain tumor). They did that for each of us. Every move, every time, they took these things along. I never realized until right now how very, very special that is. I will tell them when I see them on Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for sharing that here. If TLC, or K8 are reading... this is what a loving mother does.

Tired said...

It sounds to me like they were giving her the chance to explain all of her "bad moments". Just more of the attempt to improve her image, imo.

Linda S. said...

I have a request, please. I read somewhere that when Kate found the gum after Mady's day that it was actually at Aunt Jodi's and was reinacted later at home. Does anyone know if this is true? Hard to believe that even Kate would do that tirade more than once.

CJP-GA said...

Janine,

I am glad I could share my story and I thank you for sharing yours as well. I am so sorry about your family member's medical condition. It is obvious from your post that you have a loving, supportive family to hold you up during this difficult time (not to diminish your situation, but that is another thing Kate doesn't have). My heart goes out to you.

Didn't watch but I read that Kate was once again taking the high road by mentioning Jon and his comment about taking "the stick out" of her a$$. Like she didn't deserve that? Keep taking the high road by trashing Jon, Kate.

Gum-gate...won't be seeing this clip I'm certain. TLC will pretend that this uncaring-thankless-narcissistic-shrew of a woman she displyed doesen't exist.

You'd be wrong. Actually most of the big ones were there.

11/09/2009 7:48 PM
---------------------------------

I stand corrected. I haven't seen this episode yet...maybe I can catch the second airing of it tonight.

Do I really want to see it all over again? (Sigh...)

jayley said...

Yes stop the madness, Khate can lie and lie and lie until the cows come home, but how very telling that out of 6 babies, not one raised their arms to be picked up.

They did not expect to be picked up. Very informative for social workers and others.

Great observation!

EnjoyYOURSELF said...

I watched part of it and then watched the blow ups and had to turn it off. She DOES make excuses for all her bad behavior and trashes Jon. If TLC is trying to make her look good, they are failing big time. I'm more disgusted than ever.

stopthemadness said...

What was the thinking behind that stiped cardigan? Ugh! I guess the shortie baby doll dresses and stilettos were out for this interview. The over the top make up too. The look of smugness remains.

Stupid, and she looks muppet like, her whispering about "a sign of things to come," - more cuteness, like anything she says is just going to be "so Kate"- what her fans love - showing all of her veneers like the Big Bad Wolf, feigning shame at her behavior - she's such a phony she doesn't really care how she appears, then or now - "it was a learning process"- WTF? You have to wait til your kids are 3 and 7 to learn not to scream at your husband in public? her comments and her general demeanor make me thrilled that TLC has still not pinpointed that perfect "project" for Kate despite the "viewers" voting. Gee, without the kissing kids and the neutered husband, what exactly will her next project be?

"Oh, dno't make me cry" she fakes, as she hides her face when looking at the Alexis saying hi mommy clip. Oh, Alexis missed me. Yes, it was all about you b eing missed not missing them, and lying about
never leaving for another week.

Huh.

ouchy moment - watching Kate rip the stitches out of Jon's head?

Kate knew something was very wrong with Nala - what a healer, eh? Left on a trip and Jon rescued the dog but still some how Kate ends up the compassionate one and Jon the big loser who had to be told something was wrong. Kate being gone on her little beach bimbo tip with Steve - I mean, Mady - on HER trip - when Alexis got hurt, and "instantly" kate knew there had to be an issue. What motherly instinct, knowing instantly when your husband calls you to tell you there's an issue,that there's an issue. WOW! Except she wasn't there -as usual- despite her being the "medical personnel who gets the SOS calls," Jon took care of it and in FACT it "was healed by the time" kate got home. Interesting. How many days does it take stitches to heal? But do make this all about you Kate and your instinct and medical personnel fantasy. When was the last time you cared for one of your children other than putting them with a barf bucket to deal with their own illness, on the laundry room floor?

Marie said...

I was flipping channels and watched tonights show for a few minutes. (that was all I could stand!) A thinly veiled attempt to rectify Khate's past behaviors. Wow- TLC is desperate. Her apologies, or admissions of being "wrong" are so fake. Just her side of the story...must be just the way she likes it. Khate said she sounded so loud at Toy's R' Us "HELLLOOOOOO!" because she "had a mike on" and it amplified her voice...As TLC showed the clip with her holding her hands to her mouth to make her louder! Blech!

Cankles said...

I hate TLC, and I hate Kate.
I don't usually feel hate....but there is no other word to describe how I feel than that towards TLC and Kate.
Evil manipulation on both their parts.

stopthemadness said...

hopefully Hannah's little Kindergarten friends won't watch this episode (right) and remember the part about Hannah pooping in Hannah's unnawears, because we know how lightly five year olds take being teased about crapping their pants, potty training being a skill they have only mastered recently, and having the whole class know about it will be an added bonus. She'll laugh, and laugh, with all the benefit of hind sight. Maybe she'll get "most likely to poop in her unnawears" in her high school yearbook. Who knows, this could be precious and fun for her for years to come, along with having this b*tch of a mother on tv and both parents humiliating her with their tabloid antics, well into her teens!

stopthemadness said...

the most heartwarming moment was Kate SELLING the stuff she'd been given, for free, and pretending that they were in some way "giving back" to pediatric cancer research, "looking beyond" her family? how sweet. How much help was supplied and now she's cleaning out the garage and god only knows if any of that went to anyone, but if it did I'm guessing the Gosselins themselves contributed not one thin DIME of it.
They then go to the St Jude's and give their autographs,,,aw... inspiring. She's such an inspiration, getting a free trip and being on tv for it.

The love she tried to instill in her children (hannah kissing a couple sibs on her way out) and Kate phonily gushing about it is closely followed by the melt down IceCream gate, and Kate's comment "I need to go back to Hawaii"

you gotta wonder if these TLC editors are really on her side.

susan said...

Kate you lie so well and you do with a smile like there is nothing wrong with what you are saying. What world do you live in.
Enough, TLC ! What’s with helping her look good although I think this episode showed are well she can lie and will do so in court. I’m sure they pick the bad episodes so she could get her view out before it was used against her in the court case.

The worst thing is when they asked her about I can't remember which tup bit her lip and Kate said that when Jon called me then paused and it thought she was going to say that’s when I answered his calls. But she had to put in shes the one with the medical knowledge ~ REALLY what knowledge your miles away and you admitted it. Then she said it hurt her that she wasn't there and she wants to be the one to help her hurt kids. NO really what about Cara's foot you didn't want to stop filming and take her to the ER! What about the dog that you knew was sick but didn’t have someone run him to the vet, before you left on one of your spa/talk trips. Then you have the nerve to complain that it cost $2000 to help it; come on you spend more on your spa days. If you love that dog which we know you didn’t cost wouldn’t be a factor especially when you are make 75,000 an episode.

Then they showed the kids hitting each other her answer Boys are rough! Not I didn’t teach not to hit!

Such lies Kate. The other thing that hit my nerve was the 8 week old photo donated from the photographer. The picture of her babies wasn't important it was her first house! Not the kids the house.

O well what do I expect, serve me right for watching.

jibberjabbers said...

So, I'm guessing the part where Kate said, "We don't have time for a cast to we Cara"...

And Cara turned to look at Kate, with fear in her eyes, and then fearfully nodded her head in agreement, "no we don't"...

I'm guessing that part didn't make it right.

But hey, at least Kate was home with the kids to film a commercial for Hashbro, while Stephanie took Cara to the doctor.

stopthemadness said...

I have ton wonder how they did it in the Hi mommy" clip, that 6 other babies - several of whom were bawling when Kate entered the room - were all quiet as MICE during the precious moment of Alexis repeating her lines, over and over.

Wouldn't they be howling even more - mommy's finally HOME, she's here, and she's standing doing takes over Alexis's crib, and not picking me up? Not saying hi to me? She goes to Hannah,who's crying, and kisses her first, then goes to Alexis and the rest of the pack just shuts up? Huh.

I have to wonder if those other kids were even in the room when that close up was taken or if they were hustled out or shut up somehow, because that was just weird. So many repetetions and no one else once says "mommy" - ?

I love her screaming at Joel - and gum gate "gosh, i didn't realize I had so many meltdowns" - really?
Why are we watching this?

Good question.

"there's too many of us" - nice thing to say to your kids when explaining why mommy is losing her mind over a minor frustration like flight delay. Don't count on ME to be the grown up, to distract you or explain things, I'm exhausted! Yeah, the kids are too and they are CHILDREN looking to you for comfort and a reasonable example of how to react. But do mug for the camera, you ass, and leave your kids on their own. Good news is now you know you can "handle" gong anywhere.
I wonder what the other passengers think? I hope they all got free round trips somewhere else later.

But the good news is that while Jon was somebody else, kate was "who she was" all along.

Good for you Kate.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

THE COUPONS! THE COUPONS!
remains my TOP Khate moment.

ayr said...

boys are so mean!

*cue clips of girls hitting*

Tami said...

Also, is it just me, or does Kate take on an alter ego when doing a TLC-sanctioned interview (vs. a network interview)? Whenever she's on a TLC interview, she's all giddy, flirty and in control. When on network TV, she's all somber, awkward, stiff and serious.
******
I like how Taylor Swift did it on SNL. She had that awkwardness part down. She is a total fake in interviews because she is always trying to act sad or the victim, etc.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I do so love Janine's comments --
might we be BFF? hehe

pokiealso said...

Ultimate moment: show going off the air

favorite moment: kate admitting she needed security guard because so many hate her, if only she knew how many that was

favorite moment: kate admitting to trailer living with 5 total kids. it all makes sense know. She felt she was beneath her upbringing and feels entitled to every thing. Self centered and narsasistic at the very least. Her trailer mentality is not appreciated. Nothing wrong with being brought up in a trailer millions have done it and are fine. Her sense of entitlement is what is wack and she is total wack. Thats not a physical illness its something else.

I am behind Jon 100 percent even though his last months have been a little questionable I figure he is just acting out as a result of having to spend even one moment with the witch. He didn't deserve to be with her and her abuse. Their backgrounds were totally too different to survive together. He was brought up by respectable people and is socially acceptable. She has no social graces what so ever.

The main concern is for the kids which seem fine so cancel the show and don't you dare even pretend Kate should ever have any business in the public are you crazy? I can't imagine anyone lame enough to just watch Kate do anything. Does she not realize she was the very worst part of the show???

AmericaHatesKate said...

I hate Kate as well, but i like knowing that she goes to sleep every night.......alone.

And when those kids leave the nest she will be alone.....forever.

Very appropriate.

kate_in_cali said...

WHY are Jen and Scott being credited as Directors now? Has TLC pulled them back into the fold contractually so as not to speak out or possibly be questioned in court? What is going on? Scott is so involved with the Duggar show (and they actually show him at the house in Ark.) how is he directing J&K8?

Teresa said...

I have information from a source (since TLC and their cash cow Khate appears to read everything posted here),someone tell me if l should post the Email address of a person who has 4 years of episodes and the "ugly moments" of Khate. Since lots of you were asking if anyone can do a full expose of this horror show.
I just cannot stand anymore of this bi**h and her lies. Everything this person has btw has already been posted on Youtube

Teresa said...

P.s It's not a personal Email address. Can be reach @ Youtube. Please let me know. All their postings,subscribers etc., ALL information mysteriously disappeared from their website and they had to start again losing thousands of material. Who stole it? TLC? why are they so afraid 'stuff' will come out? What is TLC so afraid of? Something HUGE is happening between TLC and Khate and the public. I hope it will be blown open and someone does jail time.
I'm afraid for Jon....

chesterctymom said...

...oh, the Khate show was on...thats right, it was Monday...yawn...

Vanessa said...

Boys are rough? I saw as many hits from the girls as I did the boys. They hit because nobody is seeing it other than the crew and THEY certainly dont act the adult and put a stop to it. She used that crew as a babysitter (like she did everyone else including Mady and Cara) So long as someone was "watching" them they were fine, and by watching I mean being present.

Vanessa said...

Yeah the comment about seeing a relative in the "audience" made me go HUH? Either the crew really hates her and lets these things go or there's no use in retakes because she'll just flub it up again with some other assinine comment.

For the Moment? said...

I could swear that Kate started explaining one of the episodes before the producer told her what it was after she claimed that she didnt know. And for the life of her she could not figure out what the #1 most shocking moment could be...like the divorce didn't count. That was the one where they had 10 million viewers, it could not be shocking in her opinion. I tried to orchestrate so could watch the clips and then flip over while she was running her mouth and performing the fake high-pitched cackle. The woman is unstable. The kids are in jeopardy.

Note to Kate...personnel is plural. You are not medical personnel. I cannot figure out how that woman made it through RN school.

For the Moment? said...

Remember when they were going to Disney and Kate described her voice as her best asset. The woman truly loves the sound of her own voice. But how can she even bear to hear that laugh is beyond me.

ManicNarcissism said...

Just imagine for a moment a contrite Kate. A Kate sitting on the couch looking for the first time with real eyes at how she treated Jon. Not over the top as if she was acting, but really an honest to goodness tears that flow, admittance that she was harsh, that she took out her stress on him when he was feeling just as stressed. A real aha moment of regret. What if she said now that I'm older wiser realize more about how wrongly reacted I wish I would have done things differently, I wish I could do it over.

You know I might not watch but I wouldn't hate her anymore. She would have learned. None of us our perfect and we saw her change people would move on.

Take Clinton, he at first denied, denied he had done anything wrong but afterwards he acted and said he was sorry and wrong. Americans forgave him for the most part.

Now it would have been great if it had been sincere but I have to think that her PR firm and TLC do not love her and are not protecting her interests or they would have staged a Kate sees the light episode.

I could write the script, there should be a lot of pausing, head lowered, and at least one crying so hard that she asks the tape to be stopped.

For the Moment? said...

Since Alexis slept separately (more likely because of her high pitched voice rather than going around and individually waking the others)it is possible that she may have been isolated from the others even back then.

Once again Alexis always steals the show. Somehow I think Kate secretly begrudges her for that.

theblamegame said...

I happened to catch the last few minutes while waiting for Triple D (Diners Drive Ins Dives) to start.
Kate was discussing the divorce. Kate was rambling on about how SHE had grown but yet remained the same person and JON is the ONE that CHANGED as an individual. This has to be the most narcassistic and self serving use of blame yet! FYI to Kate, just because you have managed to remain the same PERSON through out nine years of marriage does not mean you are without fault or that your 'PERSON' did not or has not contributed in some way shape or form to the demise of your marriage!

BarbMae said...

None of those moments were my favorites and I stopped watching immediately. Just showing the disgusting behavior of these two morons.

Just Julie said...

What's that? WE ALL blow up at our kids and threaten to do mean things to them for revenge?

I beg to differ. Not for something so minor as a little gum on a bear. It was GUM. Thank God the child didn't get any in his hair. What would she have done? How would she have handled that child?

And this woman is getting her own show?

She's nuts.

Laurie said...

Every year I still put the little paper ornaments on my Christmas tree that my son made for me when he was a little guy. I wrap them carefully every year so that nothing happens to them. He is now 27. I have to admit that I don't have everything that he ever made but we were a military family and made many, many moves. Before each move we would go through everything and save the best of the best. As someone else stated, I now have everything that he was most proud of and some things that I just couldn't part with.

Intellesting! said...

So they SHOWED negative footage of KHate's "little meltdowns??" (don't watch so found that out here). Hmmmm. Velly-Intellesting. I have to ponder why they would choose to do that. Either so Khate could "explain herself" as some of you have postulated, or....some other reason. But why??! Cuz they KNOW people REALLY want to see the nasty stuff? And IF that is so, then why wouldn't KATE realize this and see she is being played by them?? Is she THAT utterly dumb?!?! Serious inquiry.

Linda S. said...
I have a request, please. I read somewhere that when Kate found the gum after Mady's day that it was actually at Aunt Jodi's and was reinacted later at home. Does anyone know if this is true? Hard to believe that even Kate would do that tirade more than once.
______________________
I think on Julies website she said that Jon came over to pick up the kids from Jodi's and he found gum on one or 2 pieces of clothing.

I think there was some staging- The camera is full on Joel just sitting there and Kate just happen to walk into the living room and says what are you doing buddy...

It think her in the kitchen is real, the above part with Joel looked very fake.

I think she was nasty and spiteful to collin and Jodi.

There is a clip on youtube at St Judes that did not make it to the episode.

THe young volunteer/maybe survivior girl greets Jon and kate at the door and is walking them through the corridors while talking about the hospital.

Kate is walking at an extremely fast pace in front of the girl IGNORING her COMPLETELY as if shes just trying to get the whole visit over with.

Kates body language screams - i dont give a damn about you.

I wish someone could post the link

Pilgrim Soul said...

I can't believe TLC even lets any of the Hawaii trip get aired again- everyone knows it was a huge farce and just the grifter Gosselins on the gravy train again. I would think it would be TLC's most embarrassing moment.

alone said...

CJP-GA said...
Gravy boats and place settings can survive in a box in the attic, but my kid's art work is priceless! Everyday I can walk by the cabinet and smile at purple turtles, construction paper turkeys, imprints of my babies' hands....and so on!!! I feel sorry for you Kate, you will never know the simple joys of life if you can't see beyond yourself.
_____________________
Kate will be ALONE with 10 x 8s of the family , the kids all in matching clothes with sesame street characters, disney, hawaii....

Swissmiss said...

I think Kate's two worst moments (and it's hard to choose) were her yelling at Jon in the toy store and her melt-down on the plane when she started sobbing.

I was a child when my mother fell down the attic steps, lay down on the bed, and cried in pain. I was terrifed and still remember it after 50+ years. Even my older brother remembers it. Your mom protects you; she doesn't cry.

WHAT kind of memories are these children going to have, and how will it affect how they treat THEIR future children? It makes me shudder.

KatyKat said...

Didn't watch, will never watch again, but rehashing all of these moments just reminds me that:

She really is the WORST mother ever, and I have nothing but pity for those children.

Bullet875 said...

I didn't watch last night, but I did catch a rerun episode during the day (I have heard that KON does not receice residuals so I felt it might be ok..lol). I have two favorite moments...

1. Jon is rollerblading in the street in E-Town and the some of the girls (Cara in particular I think) are trying to keep up on various riding toys. Kate yells something to Jon abut hi having to keep an eye on his daughters and says "Jon it's not always about YOU". My daughter looks at the TV screen and says, "Right, Kate, because it's always about YOU".

2. Jon is playing with the kids and then cleaning the garage (how spontaneous garage cleaning grew from playing I don't know). Mady looks at the camera and says "Dad cleaned the garage and Mom just sat in the chair. She's a Queen Bee." Priceless.!

Bullet875 said...

Also, in the rerun epi, Jon was talking about how much conditioner the girls go through per week (a bottle) when he was bathing them. Then the show the bathroom closet....stocked with 25 bottles of each shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, etc...all from Johnson and Johnson of course. I know this because the camera made sure to zoom in on the J &J body wash bottle that Jon was using to bathe the girls...ahh product placement!

I'm certain that all of that stuff was freebies...and does anyone wonder why prescription meds are so expensive? The company has to make that money back somehow....

like fingernails on the chalkboard said...

The poster that cited and provided the link to the you tube video concerning kate and the boys riding the atvs in Wyoming, way to go!!!
That is what I am talking about!!

Every lie, contradiction, fact- checked and verified.

Radaronline is on the tlc payroll.

I am disappointed in Jon for suing TLC for FIVE million dollars....

I would have sued them for at least 100 million!!!!!!!!!

See, if one poster took one episode and dissected it....ya know, the 'thousand points of light' thing...lol...the only posters eligible to participate have to be psychologically sound and have normal blood pressure though!!

She's...um...RUINED said...

I found it sad, that when they visited the children's hospital,at the end of that segment, kate said, IT WAS A NICE TRIP." WTF???

She doesn't get, never had, never will.

She is a sorry excuse for a human. Thank God Jon got out while he could. He will have to guide those kids to normalcy. She will just drive them insane.

They did miss a few good episodes...how about cupcake gate? numerous vomiting episodes? looking at poop? hitting her husband? talking down to Jon? crayola factory?

I thought it was sad when they asked her what was the most 'heart-warming' episode. She looked completely BLANK.

It was so funny when she covered up her not-a-chest in Hawaii....she certainly had some work done, huh. lol.

Janine said...

She "consolidated" the kids outfits
for Good Housekeeping... she didn't coordinate them.
She loved, loved ,loved the Hannah pooped in her unnawares clip. (I guess Hannah will take that up with her later)
She said Leah enunciates beautifully. I did hear a D un Unnerwears once, but everthing else sounded like the versions we hear (could they have digitalized that word??? like they have fuzzed out Steve?) Wouldn't want Steve in the show after he has been in so many... Jon wears blurred shirts and Steve has a blurred head. TLC is mocking K8 and she isn't getting it. One sad moment is the shot of Joel (I think) riding his two wheeler at 4. Jon was so proud and encouraging. Never saw that again. He could have taught his siblings by now.

whenitrainsitpours said...

Kate says she has a '4-pack' already and is working on a '6-pack'; cut to clip of Kate running on the tread mill. IMO, it wasnt ABS that Kate was referencing but the 6 pack of tall boys she bought just prior to doing the couch interview and the 4 she drank prior to and the 2 she will swig down after the director says 'its a wrap' !!

just wondering said...

Linda S. said...

No, Jodi didn't know abything about the gum until Kate called her.

Shari said...

The clip of Jon telling her to 'get the stick out' followed by Kate's dramatic, "A sign of things to come...." The clip of Kate sobbing on the airplane repeatedly saying, "I'm done. I'm so done.".....(Another sign of things to come.....)

On a side note; it appears that they constructed this farce of an episode directly from the comments off of this site. So my question is, are they mocking us or Kate? Last night's "episode" did NOT paint a pretty picture of her. It's almost as if TLC knows they're at the end of the road with her, so they're throwing her under the bus themselves.

mommadiane5 said...

When my husband and I were expecting our 1st baby...my mother in law gave me several items that were my husband's as a baby and toddler...2 outfits( one was the one he wore in his 6 mo. old baby pic)and a couple of his favorite toys. Those items I passed on to my oldest son when he had his 1st son. When our son was about the same age, we took his pic wearing the same outfit as his Dad with his Dads baby pic next to him and then, they put the outfit on their son and took his pic with the pic of his Dad and Paw Paw next to him.

My Mother didn't really save much. But, that made me decide that it was important to save my 3 sons stuff. I have every report card, every ribbon they won, every trouphy, all of their important projects. I saved their blankies. I couldn't part with those things except to give to my sons when they are ready.

I haven't watched the show in a while and I was so sad to hear about Kate throwing away their art projects. That is just so cold. My middle son carved a bird out of wood in middle school. I do not know what kind of bird it is, but, it is still in my living room 15 yrs. later.

Poor Kate. She won't have those important little treasures.

Protect8 said...

As StopTheMadness said:

"Seeing Lexi standing in that crib just bewildered - but still game, still bonny and filled with good will - but yet not asking for an "uppy" is heartbreaking."

This was my exact reaction to this so-called heartwarming clip. The child seems confused and scared and obviously it isn't just because Kate has a new hairdo. When Kate tells Alexis to say her hair is "pretty" is cringeworthy.

As much as I want the show to end and the children to be off the air, I worry about what Kate's temper -oops excuse me - Kate's humorous meltdowns - will be like behind closed doors and how this will hurt the children.

I could never understand why others saw this clip as an example of how much the babies loved Kate. It always came across to me as an example of much Kate loves Kate.

P.J.R said...

I caught the last 15 min of that Top Moments show-If she asks what people came away with from watching her scream,blather on,blow up,scream some more,abuse her husband with words,act like she is the only person in the universe,treat your children like unwanted baggage unless a camera is rolling and how not to be a mother--well what I got from it is Good Grief that woman needs a mental health pro to check her into a recovery program for inflated egos.sighh only 2 more shows-- pity..no more Kate to gather parenting and life coaching skills from.WHAT WILL WE ALL DO?

Vanessa said...

So Khate's always been who she is, she will always be that person? In the next breath, she's saying how she's not that "meltdown" person anymore, that she's learned to not act that way. Why didn't they show the clip of her berating/blaming Jon for HER behaviour and see how she'd justify that one? (I'm referring to the ice-cream episode)

Im_in_PR said...

Can you guys imagine the conversations before they filmed this one?

Producer: Kate, we really need you to go back upstairs and change clothes. We got so much bad press on your "Producers ask Kate fake reader questions" show and the "Kate: Her Lies" show that its now apparent that America will not accept you in the role of "Hooker Mom."

Kate: Protests *9&^%()(&^&.

Producers: Yes, I know Kate, you paid a lot of money for those tata's (under his breath, "actually Joel, Aiden, Leah, Hannah, Alexis and Colin paid a lot for them....)but America has spoken. The Hooker look has to go.

Fade to loud stomping clomping sounds and Kate storms back upstairs to change into something more presentable.

abbra said...

Everyone needs to stop watching this show. Its just about over. Why fuel the fire and have TLC convince Kate she can be the next TLC network Star so TLC can capitalize on her and make more money. Life after J&KPlus8 is probably the next series for Kate and people will tune in to see what she is up too since the split and divorce.
Kate has an over the top ego already. You know she likes the money and is going to do anything she can to continue the extravagant lifestyle she has become accustomed to.
ITS NOT OVER PEOPLE! This is only the beginning for Kate Gosselin and " Fame."

Im_in_PR said...

"there's too many of us" - nice thing to say to your kids when explaining why mommy is losing her mind over a minor frustration like flight delay. Don't count on ME to be the grown up, to distract you or explain things, I'm exhausted!

I thought it was interesting how they pixelated Steve out this time, to hide the fact that even back then he and Kate were sitting closer together than she and Jon.

Peter and Megan said...

In the St. Judes episode, didn't it sound like Kate was "horse"-like she had a cold? What business does she have going into a cancer hospital with a cold!

rural mom said...

The top viewer clip IMO has to be Collin crying in pain from constipation and Kate ignoring him. That was eye opening, to see a mother ignore her own child in pain,Kate casually flipping through a catelogue, irritated by his tears, frustrated she couldn't make a decision about the beds. A normal mother shows immediate concern, gets tearful herself seeing her kid in pain, moves quickly to help. Kate is not normal and she is not a mother, she needs therapy and her kids will need therapy and I hope Jon successfully sues TLC so the kids have money to fall back on, because they certainly don't have fond memories of a loving mother.

Huh? said...

kate_in_cali said...
WHY are Jen and Scott being credited as Directors now? Has TLC pulled them back into the fold contractually so as not to speak out or possibly be questioned in court? What is going on? Scott is so involved with the Duggar show (and they actually show him at the house in Ark.) how is he directing J&K8?

********************************

If they can question Jon's lawyers in court they can certainly question "directors".

Laurie said...

If TLC really wants to get the ratings up they will show the best of Kate's Meltdowns and Beatdowns and have Jon & the kids sitting on the couch giving their impression of the events. I wonder what the kids would have to say now about some of the meltdowns - i.e., ice creamgate, cupcakegate, etc.

She's..um.. RUINED said...

well, it is sorta like looking at a car wreck...you just GOTTA look!
Well, I don't think tlc execs are stupid (they may be morally bankrupt, but they aren't stupid).
They KNOW kate isn't marketable without the kids.
Why do you think they are suing Jon?

Good catch to the earlier poster about the 'consolidated' versus the correct 'coordinated' clothing. I just cracked up when she said that last night. What an idiot.

She has to be stupid, she just can't see that tlc is making fun of her too.

I was shocked to see her wear clothing last night!!!!!!!

Isn't it interesting that she is self-assured (self, her fav word) while with tlc, yet is stiff as a week old cadaver on any other show??

I hope tlc gives her a show without the kids. I also hope she flames out in astonishing speed (I guess I have a streak of meanness in me too).
The only bad thing about that? Her closest ones to lash out at are the kids...

So Khate's always been who she is, she will always be that person? In the next breath, she's saying how she's not that "meltdown" person anymore, that she's learned to not act that way. Why didn't they show the clip of her berating/blaming Jon for HER behaviour and see how she'd justify that one? (I'm referring to the ice-cream episode)

*******************************

If she's not the "meltdown" person any more, what was that little episode at the bus stop a week or so ago where she had a fit that the tups were moving too much after just having gotten off a long bus ride? Just another kate kon-tradiction.....

HOLY KATE, BATMAN! said...

If TLC really wants to get the ratings up they will show the best of Kate's Meltdowns and Beatdowns and have Jon & the kids sitting on the couch giving their impression of the events. I wonder what the kids would have to say now about some of the meltdowns - i.e., ice creamgate, cupcakegate, etc.

YOU ARE A GENIUS!!!!!!

she is evil said...

Doesnt Kate make tlc's skin crawl as she does everyone else? She is a horrible excuse for a mother; she should be ashamed of herself, but can't see what a dolt she is. The crew must want to kill themselves listening to her

Geri said...

Interesting how Kate says Jon is now a different person but she stayed the same, but almost in the same breath she insists the meltdowns and abusive behaviors are from the "OLD KATE"....
So she "stayed the same but didn't"...right, Kate.

It's almost as if TLC knows they're at the end of the road with her, so they're throwing her under the bus themselves.

Kind of but not really. It's sort of an illusion they are perpetrating in a sense.

Yes, they showed a small clip from Gumgate, but they didn't show her abusive behavior toward Jodi on the phone, from that episode.

They showed the ice cream meltdown, but they didn't show the mentally abusive and cruel cupcake denial.

They showed her being rude and abusive towards Jon, but they didn't show that she has been rude and snide to everyone who's ever been on the show giving her a freebie.

They showed the kids coloring at the table, but didn't show her rancid behavior towards her own flesh and blood at the Craylola Factory.

They showed Alexis' hurt lip, but didn't show the clip of Kate neglecting Colin in sever distress from being constipated and flapping him away from her with the pages of a catalog as he wept in pain.

They showed her feigning concern that she wasn't there when Alexis hurt her lip, but they didn't show her placing that sick toddler on the floor in a laundry room to fend for himself when he had the flu and was throwing up.

One thing TLC did show though, was her curling up her lip and scornfully saying that the boys were "just so violent" when the clip played of the boys hitting each other. They then immediately showed a clip of the girls slamming one another and pushing someone off the table to the floor. And Kate said "Oh, that's just normal sibling rivalry..."



As if Kate, as if.

**Janine said**I didn't see the whole show. Did
K8 say she saved the dog? Wasn't Jon the one who took the dog to the vet picked the dog up up with ALL of the kids (in the winter weather). She (K8) was on a business trip..
************************************

No...I think Her HIGHness said SHE noticed the dog wasn't feeling well and how she left for a trip and came back and the dog was still acting strange and she left again and that's when Jon took the dog to the vet....or something like that.

You telling me that someone who could give a rat's ass about those dogs and probably never paid any attention to them would be the one to notice the dog being sick? Yea...right.
